Hey Max--great to hear about your trip (both of them!).
I grew up in San Mateo, about 20 minutes south of the city--we would cut school and go up to the Haight or Ocean beach or wherever and just bum around. Love SF. Do check out 710--it's nothing special--but it's a part of the history of our shared passion. Winterland was at the corner of Post and Steiner. There are condos there now, but maybe a few ghosts are still floating around. The Fillmore (at Geary and Fillmore) is happening. Lots of shows, but I'm not sure who/what while you'll be in town. Check online--just google Fillmore SF. The Beach Chalet (www.beachchalet.com) is out by the windmills at the west end of GG Park and is a cool place for a beer and a meal. The Shitones play every
Thursday (no cover)--they're an offshoot off the Mermen, an outstanding instrumental surf band. They totally jam out on classic surf covers and originals. Jim Thomas just smokes on guitar. Both the Mermen and the Shitones are on the LMA, with some GREAT recordings. (I would advise all to check out the Mermen).
Have fun Max--be safe and be smart...
